Taurus has just announced that they are expanding their revolver line to add the Taurus .327 Magnum. The new wheelgun also accepts .32 H&R Magnum as well as .32 S&W Long. Taurus says the 856 was the inspiration for this new release.
“The Taurus 856 has proven itself as a dependable, easy-to-carry personal protection handgun for anyone who favors the reliable performance and simplicity of a revolver. The revolver’s compact design, smooth operation, and recoil-mitigating cushioned grip has made it a go-to firearm for everyday carry and deep concealment. Previously chambered only for .38 Special +P, Taurus now offers consumers a revolver based off the popular 856 but chambered for the highly capable .327 Federal Magnum.”
.327 Federal Magnum Features
- 2-inch or 3-inch barrel that is multi-cartridge compatible
- Able to accept .32 H&R Magnum and .32 S&W Long cartridges
- Matte black carbon-steel or stainless-steel barrel, cylinder, and frame are backed by a recoil-absorbing rubber grip
- Front serrated ramp sight
- No-snag rear sight channel
Available in Matte Black and Stainless, the .327 won’t break the bank, as both models have an MSRP of under $400.
- Matte Black Model – $371.05
- Stainless Model – $388.32
About the chambering, the people at Taurus say, “The .327 Federal Magnum is one of the “dark horse” cartridges in the personal defense world. Based on a lengthened .32 H&R Magnum cartridge case, the .327 Federal Magnum exceeds the performance of its parent cartridge with velocity pushing toward the .357 Magnum range without the heavy perceived recoil pulse. This makes the .327 Federal Magnum-chambered Taurus an excellent choice for EDC revolver fans looking for a hard-hitting yet easily manageable 6-round capacity handgun in a compact and concealable form.”
